Part of: Coastal Zone '91


Problems with the sectorally based, largely single-purpose approach to the management of ocean resources and ocean space in the United States have been amply documented in recent years. This paper provides a summary of current research by the authors on alternative ways to improving the U.S. system for governing ocean and coastal resources. The first section reviews major problems present in the current U.S. approach to ocean management. A second section outlines the research program the authors are pursuing to develop a more integrated ocean management framework. As the research is currently in progress, no research findings are yet available.
